Please join us in the social hall, as we welcome Soferet (scribe) Rachel Jackson to Ahavas Achim. Rachel, owner of Binah Design, is a Modern Orthodox feminist, artist, graphic designer, bookbinder and scribe.

Rachel has a degree in visual art from the University of Chicago and a certificate in bookbinding from the North Bennet Street School in Boston. 

Rachel will be leading a hands-on calligraphy workshop, utilizing the same materials that are used to produce a Torah, and speaking on her experience training to be a scribe, a traditionally male dominated profession, as well as some of the particulars of the Jewish law and intricacies of the work. 

You can learn more about Rachel, and her work, on her website.

This workshop and speaker will be open to all. Because a portion of this workshop will be hands on, we are requesting RSVPs and will be collecting a materials fee at the door. Please RSVP via email

Cost is $10 for members of CAA and $15 for non-members. Please RSVP by Wednesday, February 12, 2020.
